Meet
Bobby & Frank

They’ve got their feathers ruffled. Why? These two pigeons used to love their satellite perch. Now that you can stream DIRECTV satellite-free, they’ll have to find a new nest, or join the no-satellite flock.

No dish?
That’s just disrespectful.

Now that you can stream DIRECTV without a satellite, our pigeon pals will need to get a new place to land. They may not be thrilled right now, but once they see they can still watch their popular shows, all that chirping might just stop.

They were a bit ruffled at first. But finally, they see the light (or should we say, the screen). Now they're all about embracing the satellite-free life, even if it means finding new perches.


Absolutely! They've traded their satellite dish view for a front-row seat right by the window. Now they never miss a beat, or a tweet, from their favorite shows.


They've become TV connoisseurs and are enjoying a bird's-eye view of all the action that DIRECTV has to offer
